Flu Symptom Check List
for Families,Schools and Child Care Programs
Flu season in Massachusetts usually starts in the fall and runs through the spring. The main symptoms of influenza (flu) include fever in combination with a cough and/or sore throat. Some people may also have a runny nose, body aches, headache, chills, and feel tired. Some people (especially young children) may also have diarrhea and vomiting.
To keep flu from spreading in the community it is important to keep your sick child at home when he or she has the flu. Use this form during flu season to determine whether your child should attend school or child care.
